Exhibition of Edgar Degas to be Held in St. Petersburg

From December 21 the Hermitage Museum will display never exhibited sculptures by the great impressionist Edgar Degas.

      Edgar Degas is justly considered one of the most surprising and original French artists of the late 19th century. His canvasses are imbued with play of light and shadow, and can be called impressionistic thanks to their entrancing play of vivid colours.

      In the late years of his creativity Edgar Degas started to be fond of sculpture. His interest in this art form was in some way provoked by his worsening eyesight. But mostly the artist was just interested in experimenting with forms and movements.

      During this period of the creativity Edgar Degas made a number of wax sculptures, but never had them exhibited. These stunning art works were found only after the artist’s death. The wax figures were taken a bronze cast of.

      The exposition includes about 30 most interesting works by the outstanding artist.

      The exhibition will run till February 16, 2014.
